Do you suffer from gum disease? We can help. For gum disease treatment in Wichita, call Rock Road Dental today!
Periodontal disease affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth. Gum disease can cause inflammation, tooth loss and bone damage. The infection starts when the gums become inflamed due to bacteria in plaque, a sticky, colorless film that forms on your teeth.
Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine and paying regular visits to your dentist can prevent gum disease. Daily brushing and flossing can keep plaque to a minimum. Professional cleanings every six months are also recommended.
In certain cases, periodontal surgery may be recommended to treat gum disease when non-surgical treatment is ineffective. We may recommend procedures such as pocket reduction, soft tissue grafts or bone regeneration to treat gum disease. If a tooth has been lost due to gum disease, dental implants are always an option for permanent tooth replacement.
